the packages fail to compile on arm and mips:
as far as I understand, the header hdfi.h defines fixed width
datatypes such as float64, uint8, int32, ... depending on the
detected architecture, and it's not detecting mips and arm properly.
I've checked, and see that Debian has a number patches for this and
related issues, but I'm a bit out of my depth here (and don't have
arm or mips systems to test before submitting any patches). What are
the options? It would take me quite a bit of time to understand the
Debian patches and see what we need.
Ideally, HDF4 maintainers would fix this in a future release. I can
try to contact them.
